Anytime Roman Abramovich decides about the future of a manager barely anyone bats an eye to his decisions. And in his 13 years ownership, he has gone through 9 managers with Mourinho sacked twice.
Be that as it may, if new reports softening up Spain are valid, even the most solidified, frustrated of present day football fans will be left shaking their heads at the Russian’s trigger upbeat nature.
As indicated by MARCA, Antonio Conte’s association with Abramovich has weakened in the course of the most recent couple of months, following a disappointing transfer window and a shaky start to the new season and now Abramovich has purportedly chosen to sack the Italian and has already begun searching for replacements.
The Spanish daily paper’s report likewise guarantees that Antonio Conte and Abramovich are not even on talking terms and all interchanges between the match experience club chief Marina Granovskaia, who additionally manages parts of the club’s transfers.
Abramovich was additionally evidently despondent with the way Conte gruffly managed Diego Costa over the summer, sending Costa a text message to illuminate he was never again required at Stamford Bridge, regardless of the fact that he helped win two Premier League titles in three seasons. The two got bad blood in January after some argument at the ground and Costa was later sold back to Atletico Madrid this summer.
Tuesday night’s shambolic 3-0 Champions League loss against Roma didn’t improve the situation, either, with the Blues handing over arguably their worst performance under Antonio Conte as they had a humiliating defeat at the Italian Capital.
Be that as it may, in spite of a rough start to the new season, Conte just won Chelsea the Premier League Title and the FA Cup final just five months ago. The Blues are set to qualify for the round 16 despite their loss, and they’re already in the top 4 in the league table. If sacking the Italian is still necessary, who’ll be able to come in turn things around for good?
The London side is right now nine points behind of league top Manchester City, having lost three of their first ten matches of the season. While the situation does look similar to the one back in 2015 during Mourinho’s title defense, the Italian has shown that he’s much more capable of handling pressure after the side came back from behind to win 4-2 against Watford
Maybe Antonio Conte will be able to change his Abramovich’s mind with a win over Mourinho on Sunday.
